For the vast majority of us, we are stuck in an office all day from 9 to 5 and even longer. We spend our whole lives working incredibly hard so that we have enough money when we retire 35 to 45 years from now. The pension age seems to be increasing all the time and for many millennials, retirement may only come in their 70s. It seems a lot of time and effort to put aside money for an age when you’re probably not going to be able to enjoy your wealth and your health will probably suffer as well. It makes far more sense to embrace life today and to make your life as comfortable as it can be.
We all need some kind of hobby that will distract us from our jobs and allow us to think about something different if only for a few hours on the weekend. It’s likely that you have a garden to the front and back of your home and you haven’t been paying attention to it as of late. Everyone tells us that your castle is your home and so maybe it’s time that you started to take that quite literally and create something special around your home. You could for example install some trex decking and this would create the perfect outdoor place for both you and your family.
Any doctor will tell you that you should be spending a lot more time outside so that you can appreciate nature and experience the great outdoors. The following are just some of the benefits both physically and mentally of spending a lot more time outside in nature.
- All of that fresh air – Good clean air is especially good for your lungs and so there is lots to do outside in your garden like taking care of your potted plants that sit on your new deck or planting some flowers and shrubs in and around your flower beds.
- All of that sunshine – Thankfully we are coming out off the current pandemic and the one thing that we have learned is that many people were deficient in vitamin D. This was because we were spending far too much time inside and not enough time outside. The sun right over your head provides you with all of the vitamin D that you could possibly need to keep your immune system strong and to guarantee you good health.
It’s time that you got yourself outdoors once again and now that you have your new decking, there is no excuse anymore.
